6. Can the Tanker 830 be use for drilling or screw piling?
By specifically requesting the 2500Nm rotary drill system with chain in place of the hammer, it can be used for sustained drilling.
The 1500Nm drill can be attached simultaneously to the hammer frame for occasional drilling.
Screw piling: Yes
There are various sizes of rotary heads designed for screw piling.
On request these can be can be used in place of the hydraulic hammer.
With the benefits of a state of the art torque reader they are excellent for all screw piling.
